Mt. Hood is the mountain visible from Portland, where Portlanders head for skiing, camping, hiking, biking and just about any recreational activity you can think of. Plan your next adventure with Mt. Hood.
Here's a recent review: "The Mount Hood was immaculate, very well-stocked, and super fun to drive with its manual stick shift. The engine was solid and reliable. For me, it was romantic with the old fashioned hand cranked windows and the giant steering wheel (swoon!). The owners literally thought of everything a person might need while camping - bedding, chairs, portable table, camp stove, cork screw, cooking supplies, even basics like olive oil, salt, and coffee. The set up was super easy. Any questions we had were readily answered via the GoCamp manual provided for us. GoCamp makes it possible to pack a bag and roll. It's THAT easy. Highly recommend!"

This 1986 Vanagon Weekender with a 1994 Subaru engine has a 4 speed manual transmission and enough horsepower to take mountain passes with ease and keep pace with highway traffic. The Weekender model does not include the kitchen, instead the backseat and lower bed are extra large, a great trade off. The back seat folds into a bed for two and the pop-top sleeps two as well. A table swings up for dining and the rear facing seat lifts up to reveal storage for up to 6 bags of groceries! The air conditioning system has been rebuilt and blows cold.
The van is mostly original but includes the following upgrades: dimmer controlled LED lights in main cabin and the pop-top, LED reading lights for back seat, hands-free Bluetooth stereo with all new speakers and subwoofer to crank tunes above the road noise, snap-on rain fly to keep the pop-top dry on those rainy nights, shoulder belts for the back seats, curtains all the way around for privacy and to keep out the morning sun, memory foam topper for bottom bed to maximize comfort, large skylight for stargazing, gas struts to make raising the pop-top easy and a 120 volt inverter with USB outlet to keep your electronics charged.
